Event Description

Come into the Library to watch the daily page turning of John James Audubon’s masterwork The Birds of America.

Every weekday at 3:15 pm, visitors can come into the Library to watch the page turning of Audubon's The Birds of America. Published from 1827–1838, this monumental work is arguably the most influential book on birds ever created.

A prized holding in the Academy Library's extensive rare books collection, this double elephant folio edition contains 435 life-size, hand-colored engravings bound into five volumes. Less than half of the 200 original sets survive. This is one of them.
